The hostel is on a great position just 10 meters from Grand Place.The rooms and bathrooms are clean.Kitchen is big with alot of place to sit down and eat.Only two things that hasnt been good is that check in place is 15 min walk from this hostel,and chill out room is too small.Overall,its a good hostel on excellent location.

The location of this hostel can't be beaten, and more than makes up for the slight inconvenience of having to pick up your room keys from the reception of a different hostel. The hostel was very clean, with good showers and a decent sized room. Overall a great choice for a short stay.

Hostel is awesome, location is the best and price good, BUT WHY THE HELL CANT WE JUST CHECK IN AT THE HOSTEL WE BOOKED? It would be so much better if they had a reception at this hostel, its closer and easier for the travelers with their heavy backpacks and luggages!

Amazing. The location couldn't have gotten any better. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Stayed in a 6 person dorm with room one other friend and each paid 20 euro. When we got there we couldn't believe we were staying there for only 20 euro, seemed like it would have been much more expensive for the location, security, cleanliness, and hospitality. Would give it the highest recommendation possible!

It was great staying at Hostel Grand Place. It has a perfect location, only several seconds to the grand palace. The only problem is that one has to check in at another hotel, and the language room is there as well, so it may cause a little bit inconvenience. But I think for the great location, the cleanliness, and the great kitchen, it's definitely worth it!

I stayed in Brussels Hostel Grand Place in November/2014,and I thought it was excellent. It couldn´t be better localizated. It was very clean, safe each bed has its electric socket, and the bed was very comfortable. The only inconvenience is that you have to go to 2go4 to check in, and then walk to the Grand Place Hostel with all your luggage, because your room is only available at 15:00. It would be better if the hostel had its own reception.

I wanted to stay at Grand Place because I thought it was close to the Noord Station. But the Hostelworld map actually showed me the location of 2go4 hostel which is where you can check in for Grand Place but is a 10 minute walk away. The receptionist was kind enough to arrange for a bed at 2go4 at the same price, so it all ended well for me. But you can't count on a bed being open, so be aware: when it comes to booking for the Grand Place, you might run into such a snag.

The reception of the hostel was not functioning, so it was necessary to walk to the other reception to do the check-in, which was quite hassling. Also, I wasn't informed that the full payment should be done by one person, and as it was quite a big amount of money, this was an issue.

Although our stay was pleasant, somehow a lady who had not booked in that room was in there. Some other guests in our 6 person mixed dorm let her in after she claimed to have been staying there, but had a broken key. She most likely followed some people in the door, but certain hadn't booked anything at the hostel. This by no means is the hostels fault, but be weary of this happening again.

The location of this hostel is very good, super close to the central square and with easy access to everywhere. There is coffee and tea free all day. The problem is hostel is still being installed, has no reception yet, so check in must be done only after another drive to get where he truly is. The two units are not far away, but I did not know it would be like, rather have been informed before. The room we stayed in had bathroom outside and the bad was that it was one to eight people.

American guy who we picked up the keys from the other reception was helpful and friendly. When we were back in the area and dropped in again to ask more questions we had a less than helpful or friendly Belgian woman. Customer service costs nothing so why be obtuse? Many lockers in our room in Grand place appeared to work but on further inspection were broken so leaving your valuables is a risk. Apart from that, great location and the hostel was clean.

It's clean, newly renovated and quite easy to find from the North station. Very helpful staff - answered the typical tourist questions "where to go, which bar is good" etc without hesitation. Highly recommend the free city tour - well worth the time! It's hard to estimate the value for money, because Brussels itself is a super expensive place, so you should decide for yourself if 26eur for a bed in 4 bed dorm is a good price.

Warning: you have to check in at the 2go4 hostel about a 10 minute walk from there. Other than that, perfect location (literally 15 second walk from city center), room felt like a hotel, free coffee in the morning, good price, easy check out, reception at 2go4 hostel was helpful, don't see any reason to stay anywhere else. This hostel will gain a lot of visitors when it gains its own reception area.

When I booked I didn't see the hostel age limit stated on the site. However fair play to the staff, who sorted out the problem and arranged a bed for me.

Loves the location, everything was super clean, I'm sure your business will be absolutely booming once the construction in the lobby is done. I would highly recommend it!!
